NEW WHEELS NO STEAL FOR SUSPECTS
Police have arrested two suspected car thieves after the pair ran out of petrol making a getaway. The two men, who police say work for a local TV station and an NGO, planned to buy a car from a vendor based in Phnom Penh. The group was on its way to Kandal province to complete the sale. But on the way, the trio somehow got into an argument, and the car’s owner hopped out of the car. The two suspects drove off, only to be arrested when their hot wheels ran out of fuel.
